The Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences (IPaQS) offers a number of graduate-level taught programmes in these areas, together with a range of exciting and diverse PhD / EngD research opportunities in over 30 research groups.

We maintain strong links with industry, and have formal strategic alliances with SELEX ES, Renishaw and AWE. We are also a centre of entrepreneurship and innovation in photonics, with three spin-out companies founded by IPAQS academics in the last five years alone.

Activities including the student-led OSA Chapter, postgraduate lab tours, regular research seminars and the weekly coffee-and-donuts time make IPAQS a vibrant and dynamic community for researchers of all career stages.
